Flights on the other routes will operate normally

Biman Bangladesh Airlines has cancelled its scheduled flights on five international routes till November 30 considering the country's Covid-19 situation.

The routes are Manchester, Medina, Bangkok, Kathmandu and Kuwait, according to a message posted on the national flag carrier's website on Monday.

However, flights on the other routes will operate normally.

From March 21, the Civil Aviation Authority, Bangladesh (CAAB) had shut down all domestic and international flights in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the country.

On June 1, CAAB permitted operation of all domestic flights maintaining social distancing and following health guidelines after over two-month-long suspension.

The domestic flights on Dhaka-Chittagong, Dhaka-Sylhet, Dhaka-Syedpur, and Dhaka-Jessore routes then resumed on a limited scale.

In line with the government and CAAB's decision, international flights from the country then resumed on June 16, after nearly three months of suspension aimed to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.
